Measom Freer & Co was founded in 1937 by Gordon and Eve Freer in Leicester, UK. In the 1940’s the company was involved in the early forming and pressings of plastics. By the late 1940’s Measom Freer & Co became one of the pioneers in processing plastics by injection moulding. Buttons and trimmings for the fashion and clothing trade occupied most of the business.
In the 1950’s all manufacturing was moved to a new injection moulding facility on Saffron Lane, Leicester and the company began manufacturing for the motor trade, electricals and household goods. Measom Freer was an innovator in the industry, becoming the first producer of plastic shoe heels in the UK and introduced the bicycle reflector.
In the late 1960’s the company had expanded into blow moulding and started producing plastic bottles for areas such as the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Blow moulding also meant the company could start producing technical mouldings such as bellows.
In 1995 all production was moved to Chartwell Drive in Wigston. Today the company is still run as a family business and owned by the 3rd generation of the Freer family with the 4th generation moving the business forward with increased investment and innovation.
